Okay /biz/ I am here today to ask a question about what graduation should I get, would you lend me an ear? I’m in doubt between economics and business; so here is my story:
>I am from Brazil (Yeah I know pretty shitty, but I gotta deal with that)
>Went to a vocational high school, studied informatics there, not sure about the equivalent term in English, best I could find was Information Systems Technician
>Last Year I took universities entrance exams, passed on the “best” university of the country (well the term best may be debatable, however it is the most renowned, and public)
>Here in Brazil you have to choose your career before you take the entrance exam, so you are accepted to a specific graduation course of the university, however to compensate for this you usually can choose another course as a secondary option. If you don’t get a good enough result to pass in your first option you may still be accepted in your second option.
>So, my first option was economics and second was business, my results were not good enough for economics, but sufficient to be accepted in business
>There is the possibility of transferring to the economics course of the same university, but I wonder if I should, it is said that it is quite easy to find a job with a bachelor in business, the job offer is said to be the same while the business course is said to be a bit easier to conclude
>Wanted to try my hand at the stock market in the future
So my basic question is, should I finish my business course or change to an economics course?
I think Economics is better... If you want to make a lot of money and become someone in a position of power in a company or in government. Economics is what most of the most successful people in the world studied. The only thing is, you have to do further study in Economics. You have to do a Masters at least, and most likely a PhD eventually to get to the top.
I'm planning on doing Economics in University, and then going to Law School, because if I don't get into a good Law School I still have the option of going into an Economics Masters or PhD.
>>1013653 Thanks for your opinion anon, it is quite reassuring listening to someone that is not simply focusing on the short term. I’m personally more inclined to economics because it was my first option, understanding the market, the factors that may cause fluctuations looked like a wonderful thing to me, but then the business course didn’t look too bad. People around me started saying that it is easier to get a job with a business degree, that doing economics wouldn’t really be much of an improvement, and perhaps... Comment too long.

In Canada where I'm from, a business degree gets you no where, unless you went to a top school or had REALLY good connections.
Since you're in Brazil, I doubt you have access to that many good connections, or even useful connections. If you want to leave Brazil and go to the US, or Canada, or EU, Economics will definitely be better. A Business degree is seen equal to a Social Science degree here in first world developed countries. If you just want to live in Brazil forever, I guess a Business degree... Comment too long.

What's /biz/ opinion on credit cards? I'm 19 and know absolutely nothing about this stuff. From what I hear it's a smart idea to build credit because it helps a lot in the future. There is something around 400$ that I want, I could easily wait and save up for it every paycheck but then it came to me that I could use this to start building credit. Is this a bad idea? My dad pleads to me that credit is a bad thing and still won't need it later on in life but figure I could use some second opinions.
I'm a logistics officer in the Air Force, just starting out. Looking to complete my MBA in the couple of years. Do you think career prospects are higher for me if I do my 20 years, get the traditional pension and get out, or look to resign my commission, take my MBA and moderate experience to the private sector?
>>1013612 Bro I thought about going to the Air Force. You know how much retirement pays after 20 years? 20-30k. That's starting salary for college graduates. You've been successfully lured RuneScape style by the government. Good fight.
In 20 years of military youll be worthless to the private sector. You brain wont even work right becuase youll think money should just come to you just because. Grind out 20 and enjoy being a welfare queen the rest of your life and get a second job babysitting idiots like you currently do
I kind of have a potentially unique situation on my hand, so I don't know how many replies I'll get.
I'm a software dev in my 20s looking at potentially Dublin/London to move to next. There's plenty of tech companies there and I'm not worried about that (visa issues I haven't looked into). I have a Vanguard Roth IRA that I contribute to. I don't see myself spending the rest of my life abroad and will eventually return to the states. Can I even contribute to an IRA if I live abroad? Is it even financially prudent? I partially fear that... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /biz/, poorfag femanon here who's fallen into some desperate times. I already work two jobs/in college and in need of extra income. Any idea of good places to sell nudes/vids/etc? Before you mention it, I have no shame in doing this, but if you have other alternatives for side income anywhere near as profitable, please share.
>>1013511 Assuming strippers get to keep all/a majority of the money they get thrown at them onstage, the government would have no way of finding out about the excess income would they? Meaning you're getting $500 - $1000 of untaxed income a day?
Memes and /pol/itics aside, what do you think of Donald Trump's proposals for the economy? >Crackdown on illegal immigration (cheap labor supply). >Confront Chinese policies (declare China a "currency manipulator", etc.) >His tax plan (lowering taxes on corporations to keep jobs in the US).
